Join with Oxfam to campaign for food and climate justice in 2015

Oxfam is working toward a world where we can rely on a safe and healthy future for our planet, and you can help.

2014 was the hottest year on record globally and 2015 looks set to be a scorcher. But it’s not just the temperature that’s skyrocketing. The risk of bushfires is increasing. More severe floods, cyclones and droughts are destroying people’s homes, food and water supplies.

And with world leaders meeting in Paris to hammer out a global climate deal and a federal election in 2016, the heat is on Australia to get serious about climate action. We have the power to choose a safe and healthy future, we’ve got the start of some serious global momentum, and Oxfam have got some exciting plans.

2015 is set to be a huge year of climate action! Join Oxfam’s food and climate justice team now. They will be keeping you posted about a whole lot of exciting campaign opportunities.

 Supporting Oxfam

The Wishing Well was established in 2010 to offer children in out-of-home care, such as foster care and residential care, a range of healing and treatment options usually not accessible as a free therapy in mainstream health.

The Wishing Well raises funds to enable children and young people to access developmentally-appropriate and trauma-informed treatments shown to be highly effective in dealing with severe trauma and neglect. These therapies respond to the unique needs of each child and young person.

The Wishing Well is a not-for-profit incorporated charity organisation, established and managed by people seeking to improve outcomes for children and young people in out-of-home care and their families. The Wishing Well recognises the importance of the act of giving. We recognise the significance of the participation of community members and all donations are most appreciated.

The Wishing Well operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.

The Wishing Well gratefully receives donations, funding and resources through bequests, corporate partnerships, fundraising events, grants, online donations and other fund raising activities. Money donated to The Wishing Well enables traumatised children access to healing therapies. Please see our website for more information:
